Vanessa Hudgens Will Star In A DC Superhero Sitcom — But Will She Crossover With Supergirl..?

What super news!

Vanessa Hudgens was the breakout star of Grease: Live last month, so it was only a matter of time until she picked up her very own project.

Well, it seems like NBC is here to save the day, because it was announced on Monday that the High School Musical star has landed a new superhero pilot!

The new show Powerless will be part of the DC Comics Universe, but it's going to be pretty different from Arrow, The Flash, and all of the other series we've come to love — this one's a workplace comedy!

Apparently, the sitcom will follow a group of regular humans as they try to get their work done at an insurance company all while living in a world populated by superheroes and villains, including Vanessa's Emily Locke.

Basically they're all just gonna be Trish Walker from Jessica Jones, only with better luck — we hope!

Though this sitcom will be on a different network from the other DC superhero shows, Supergirl and The Flash have already proved that a TV crossover is still possible — but how much this ties into those shows remains to be seen.

Hopefully we'll be seeing Vanessa Hudgens and the rest of the soon-to-be cast Powerless ensemble on NBC this Fall!

Vanessa Hudgens' Boyfriend Austin Butler Was In The Grease: Live TV Audience — Did YOU Spot Him??

We're hopelessly devoted to their love!

Vanessa Hudgens was one of the breakout stars of Grease: Live on Sunday, and the unfortunate timing of her father's death the night before the show just made her performance all that more emotional.

Well, we think we may have figured out how she stayed so grounded for the three-hour long musical despite her situation, because she had a familiar face in the audience.

No… it wasn't one of her High School Musical castmates, it was her boyfriend Austin Butler!

The Shannara Chronicles star can be seen sitting on the bleachers with the T-Birds in one of the early scenes, and he even tweeted out his support to Vanessa, saying:

Grease: Live's Numbers Are HUGE — But Did Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit, & Vanessa Hudgens Dethrone Sound Of Music Live?

no title

They've got ratings, and they're multiplyin'!

Grease: Live may have captured America's hearts Sunday night, but did the new name in live TV musicals do enough to dethrone its predecessors?

Believe it or not, Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit, Vanessa Hudgens and the rest of the cast pulled in an impressive 12.18 million viewers — a number practically unheard of for FOX aside from Empire and The X-Files revival.

Unfortunately for the T-Birds and Pink Ladies, however, their 4.3 rating was just a note shy of beating Carrie Underwood's 4.6 for The Sound of Music Live… but that one was critically panned, so we know who the real winner is.

Grease did manage to surpass both of the other NBC musical outings — The Wiz Live and Peter Pan Live – so hopefully this means we get to see Grease 2: Live in the near future!

Do U think Victoria Justice and Ryan McCartan will be able to scare up similar numbers with Rocky Horror Show this December??
